Still Loading

5th day of loading the Ohio missile sub at Indian Island. What was Steve Buscemi’s terrified plea in the Bruce Willis movie ‘Armageddon’ … “Do a good job do a good job do a good job!”

Superboat

Nuclear sub at Indian Island this afternoon. Preparing to defect to New Zealand? Washington declaration of secession impending?

Sick to our stomachs

I’m a rich white guy, and I’m sick to my stomach thinking about it. I can’t imagine being a Muslim right now, or a woman, or an African American, a Hispanic, a handicapped person. How disenfranchised they might feel.

You Sorry SOB’s

231,556,622 eligible voters

46.9% didn’t vote
25.6% voted Clinton
25.5% voted Trump

I guess Romney was right after all … 47% of you are stupid, lazy takers contributing nothing to my country except its downfall.

“… and that those who should never …”

Weak kings are a curse on the earth, yet our oaths are made to kings, and if we had no oaths we would have no law, and if we had no law we would have mere anarchy, and so we must bind ourselves with the law, and keep the law by oaths, and if a man could change kings at whim then he could abandon his oaths with his inconvenient king, and so we need kings because we must have an immutable law. All that is true, yet as we rode home through the wintry mists I could have wept that the one man who should have been a king would not be one, and that those who should never have been kings all were.

Bernard Cornwell, “Excalibur”
